The above link provided by KSDE suggests how to sprinkle in the earth and
space science standards into 8th grade, life, and physical science courses.


Good luck to all!

Subject: [KACT] earth and space science


I am interested in how other districts address the KSDE graduation
requirement for 3 credits of science, specifically the requirement for earth
and space science concepts.  I copied the sentence below directly from the
KSBE regulations for graduation requirements:


"three units of science, which shall include physical, biological, and earth
and space science concepts and which shall include at least one unit as a
laboratory course"


Do you offer an earth science course?  If so, at what level?  If not, where
do you cover the above requirement?  At Maize, we have Geoscience which is a
district graduation requirement and is offered as our freshman science
course.  What do the rest of you do?  


Any input would be appreciated!  Hope you all are having a great year!
